    How has shipping been with MacMall? For those who have already gotten theirs.

    I was told that they should get their shipment of MBPs today.

    When did you place your order?
    Mine was placed on January 17th with the same 1GB Free ram - after such a long wait I called and they then upgraded my shipping to 2day FedEx.

    I also purchased AppleCare and it has already shipped and is nin my hands now.

    MacMall shipping?

    Strange they told you they were getting a shipment today- I ordered on Feb 16th (2.0 Ghz, 2 GIG memory) and when I called yesterday (after many unanswered emails to my sales rep) they told me they were gven a march 17th date from Apple!:mad:

    Just got off the phone and was told
    that the date has been changed until the 17th as well. The rep said they are getting 10,000 of them and currently have 341 on back order. Some did come in last week but it was only a few.

    When I ordered I was origially told the 3rd as well.

    I have been calling once a day this week and on monday they said it would ship this week but calling back on tuesday, wednesday, & thursday they said that there order from apple was pushed back. I then called today and was told that they received some in and that mine would be shipping monday or tuesday being hesitant I called back and spoke to someone different and they reiterated the same monday/tuesday ship date.

    Mine might be shipping monday or tuesday because I ordered in January not February

    After looking back on what has happened with my experience with MacMall they always denied having received any other then their first batch of ten or so they got on 2.22.06. I have talked to more than a dozen people that have received there MacBoooks from MacMall so they have been shipping them in small quantities. Denial is there method - I guess to keep the masses happy. They run on a need to know basis I think or I had three different people all come up with the same story regarding my order (very mean trick if so).
